Join Rights and Security International (RSI), the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion, and Open Society Justice Initiative, for our webinar at 5.30pm (GMT) on the 9th July 2020 as we examine how deprivation of nationality is being deployed by states as a counter-terrorism tool. By bringing in a human rights perspective on this measure, as well as discussing issues such as risk exportation and counter-effectiveness, the webinar exposes how the securitisation of citizenship amounts to over-reach by states and a misstep in efforts to counter international terrorism.
The webinar is a side-event to the 2020 UN Virtual Counter-Terrorism Week and is introduced and moderated by RSI's Executive Director, Yasmine Ahmed.
